PhD project

Bairros Sociais: A Museologia Social em festa!
Dr. Adel Igor Pausini

This work aims to understand if social museology, by promoting the capital and the human potential existing in social neighbourhoods, favours the change of life situations induced by vulnerability factors. Firstly, it sought to contextualise interdisciplinary work with Social Work, its approaches and anchorages, and to deepen the reflection on Social Museology and how this relationship can contribute to the implementation of Public Policies, particularly on Housing, given that the Social Neigbourhoods of the city of Lisbon are territories and have specific publics, present in the order of contemporary work in museology. In this way, issues regarding the inaction/action of the State, the right to memory and personal heritage are clarified. Following this direction, it is suggested the hypothesis that social projects from the perspective of social museology contribute to a different and aggregating relationship between State and Civil Society, in the construction of new narratives. The research process is done through a qualitative methodology using action research as the main tool, as well as an exploratory approach.
